How To Make Malteser Slices

These Malteser squares never last long in my house and they are also a get thing to make with children to get them interested in where their food comes from. Children also love cleaning out the bowls and trying some of the ingredients.

Ingredients:

  • 100g Butter
  • 100g Golden Syrup
  • 150g Milk Chocolate
  • 225g Digestive Biscuits
  • 175g Bag Malteser
  • 150g Milk Chocolate
  • 150g White Chocolate
  • 1 Crushed Flake

Method:

  1. In a saucepan melt the butter, golden syrup and milk chocolate gently over a low heat until everything has melted and it is a smooth chocolate sauce.
  2. While you are waiting for the butter, golden syrup and chocolate to melt, put the digestive biscuits in a freezer bag and crush with a meat mallet, or rolling pin. This is quite satisfying. You want them to be nearly all crushed. Also, crush some of the Maltesers, not all just a few.
  3. Once the chocolate, golden syrup and butter have melted stir in the crushed digestives and then the Maltesers.
  4. Line a 19 x 29 cm tin with plastic. This is great as it will keep the tray clean and saves on the washing up.
  5. Press the mixture into the tin and place in the fridge for an hour to firm up.
  6. Once firm, melt the white and milk chocolate separately. I do this in the microwave, just by putting the chocolate in glass bowls and microwaving them on short bursts until the chocolate has melted.
  7. Pour the milk chocolate over the base in dollops, then the white chocolate and swirl together with a skewer to make a pattern.
  8. Crush the Flake and sprinkle over the top to decorate and add just a little more chocolate.
  9. Place back in the fridge until it has all firmed up and then remove from the tin and slice into 12 bars.

Now it’s time to sit back and enjoy them with friends x
